Will work destroy our love?

Sam wrote:

Hi, My girlfriend of 6 months, and I are entertaining the idea of having her come to work in an accounting office that I am in charge of, I am concerned about how this will affect our relationship or if both a work relationship and a social relationship can co-exist.

We have discussed the pros and cons of this move, and have come out in favor of it, but I want to be absolutely positive about it ... any thoughts are greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Dear Sam,

All things are possible, but it's hard to imagine how you got to be in charge of the tea trolley, let alone the office.

Are you so much in love that you've completely forgotten your responsibilities to your employer and your employees? Most people with an office romance dream of taking work out of their love, only the clinically insane choose to mix the two.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying it can't work, I'm saying it's not likely to.

Suppose you fall out at home? Suppose she can't hack it? Suppose she doesn't like your management style? Suppose the staff think you're favouring her? Suppose she thinks you're favouring the staff rather than risk favouring her? Suppose she hates your best worker?

Suppose she fancies your worst worker ... I could go on all day; your turn.
